Hard Times , the shortest of Dickens’s full-length novels, is set in the fictitious Victorian-England city of Coketown, where facts are the rule and all fancy is to be stamped out. The plot centers around the men and women of the town, some of whom are beaten down by the city’s utilitarian ideals and some of whom manage to rise above it. The novel was written in 1854 and was a scathing attack on then-current ideas of utilitarianism, which Dickens viewed as a selfish and at times oppressive...

Each personage in The Pickwick Papers (just as in many other Dickens' novels) is drawn comically, often with exaggerated features of character. (Summary from Wikipedia) For further...

LibriVox recording of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Read in English by Greg Giordano "A Christmas Carol" has been credited with relaunching the celebration of Christmas as we know it.
